no you don't... the dreamhost example used the google ARIN allocation
2607:: .... this example uses the 2404 APNIC allocation.
note that this may still be 'wrong', but .. it's a different wrong. :)
But likely caused by exactly the same problem - with the distinction
between between GeoIP of the DNS server and GeoIP of the client itself.
(Keeping in mind that the DNS lookup could be occurring over IPv4,
especially in the first example)
